Don’t worry, Denyers — it’s just a coincidence it was so hot, and I know that CBS is even a less trustworthy record-keeper than NASA, so I’m sure someone will uncover a statistical error that proves a 1934 major was hotter.

But it’s no coincidence the world’s most fit golfer won. He is an all-climate player as I noted when he won “the brown British Open” at drought-stricken Royal Liverpool last year. No doubt he’ll some day win the “wettest major of all time,” too.

If my prediction that he’s going to break Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 majors by 2010 is to come true, though, he’ll need to average two per year for the next three years. An impossible task for anyone — anyone but Tiger Woods, that is.

    It may be true that today was the hottest day at the Majors. I don’t follow golf so I can’t attest to that bit of trivia. But I looked up some Tulsa weather information and it appears that 8/10/1936 was the hottest day on record with a high of 115. Today it hit 102 in Tulsa.

    I know that’s not a scientific basis for disbelieving AGW, but the hottest day at the Majors isn’t the basis for anything scientific, either.

    I think the CBS commentators were just engaging in a little subconcious propaganda. And some bloggers are giving it extra publicity.

    I think it was the hottest 4-day period for a major in history.
